TO VEIL OR NOT TO VEIL….?
A regular question at our little Hampshire based salon. I am a BIG fan of a veil. There is something amazing about walking into a church with a veil covering your face. (I’ve done it and it’s epic!) A bit like walking into a packed bar with your sunglasses on. You can see everyone, you have every confidence but a little mystery before….TAADAA!! The reveal. Also if a bride is not a force to be reckoned with anyway, a veil is like a super hero cape! Hello Wonder woman. In all seriousness a veil can really finish a beautiful Wedding hairstyle.
Veils can really finish a hair do, and enhance a dress and look, bringing everything together. Bridal Hair can look amazing with a veil, but sometimes it can be too much. We know when to scale back the hairstyle, because the veil is so ruddy epic…. Its all about getting the balance right, which is why we request so much information before a rehearsal.
Things to consider when looking for a veil;
Did you know there’s different types of edging?
And Lengths… (standard lengths, but you can have anything made to suit you!)
We love the beautiful selection by the incredible Sash & Veil. (just saying xx )
